Prayers . . . for children
A PRAYER FOR MY CHILD'S
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Precious Lord, thank you that you never sleep. Your watchful eye is always upon us. I'm so grateful for that as i send my little one off for the first day of school. Lord, I remember so well how nervous I felt on my own first day -- the butterflies in my stomach, the excitement of getting to wear new school clothes, and the uneasiness at being away from home and mom for the whole day.
I pray for a special blessing on my child today. I pray for peach to replace any anxieties.
I pray for ease in making new friends. I pray for a clear mind to be able to absorb all of the new things learned. I pray for patience and understanding for the teacher, and I ask that they relate well to each other.
Thank you, Lord, that you are our perfect Father and I can rest in the knowledge that even though my child will be out of my sight, he will always be in yours. In Jesus' name.
"But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord's love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children's children."
